So I broke my 100 day writing streak on day 3. So what. Here we are at day 5 and I’m starting again…and again and again if need be.
I have so many things I want to say and writing is, I think, the way to get those things said. I need to say them. I need to get them out into the world. And this is the way it is going to happen.
For so many historical reasons, mostly having to do with how writing was taught in school and how my life experiences and inherent personality interacted with that, I learned to hate writing. Maybe I don’t hate it. I’m just afraid of being judged.
The only way I will overcome that fear is to jump in with a goal that has nothing to do with writing “well” but just finishing. Writing just to write x-times ends in success if I write x-times. Win!
